  • Hello Ahmed,

    Your question is so short, but I think i can guess the problem. I think that you created a new Site in Active Directory Sites and Services and linked a new subnet to that site, and the you deleted the site without deleting the subent, and the IP address of the new DC belongs to that subnet.

    What you have to do is:

    1- Go to Active Directory Sites and Services, expand the tree until you reach Subnets

    2- In the right pane, check for any subnect that has a blank site name

    3- Delete that subnet

    4- Run a manual replication to all sites

    5- Run DCPROMO again

    I think this should help.
